That's when the Veterinary Services program of USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is requiring Premises Identification Numbers ( PINs) to accompany diagnostic samples submitted into the SECD program.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://nationalhogfarmer.com/pedv/pin-tags-required-free-secd-testing-dec-15" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://nationalhogfarmer.com/pedv/pin-tags-required-free-secd-testing-dec-15#comments Business Food Animal Report PEDV Health PEDV Biosecurity Mon, 08 Dec 2014 21:19:00 +0000 52751 at http://nationalhogfarmer.com National Pork Board Funds New Swine Health Information Center http://nationalhogfarmer.com/health/national-pork-board-funds-new-swine-health-information-center <div class="field-byline"> Source: National Pork Board </div> <div class="field-deck"> Entity to Focus on Preparing for Future Disease Threats </div> <div class="node-body article-body">At its regularly scheduled November meeting, the National Pork Board's board of directors approved the funding of a national Swine Health Information Center. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://nationalhogfarmer.com/health/national-pork-board-funds-new-swine-health-information-center" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://nationalhogfarmer.com/health/national-pork-board-funds-new-swine-health-information-center#comments Food Animal Report PEDV Health PEDV Biosecurity Wed, 19 Nov 2014 16:43:00 +0000 52381 at http://nationalhogfarmer.com Photo courtesy of the National Pork Board.

Detecting evidence for presence of the virus is done by using any of a number of different diagnostic tests. Diagnostic tests can be viewed as “diagnostic tools.” Like a mechanic’s shop, some of the tools are better suited for certain jobs than others, and not every shop has the same repertoire of tools. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://nationalhogfarmer.com/health/understanding-pedv-diagnostic-tests-and-tools" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://nationalhogfarmer.com/health/understanding-pedv-diagnostic-tests-and-tools#comments Food Animal Report PEDV Health PEDV Mon, 29 Sep 2014 17:14:00 +0000 51231 at http://nationalhogfarmer.com Course to Explore PEDV and Assessing Biosecurity in the Feed Supply Chain http://nationalhogfarmer.com/health/course-explore-pedv-and-assessing-biosecurity-feed-supply-chain <div class="node-body article-body">The University of Minnesota’s ADVET-S program is offering a new course on Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV) focusing on the assessment of biosecurity in the swine feed supply chain.

First, it was the absence of antigen reagents to measure serological responses. Then it was trying to figure out if sows really had to show clinical sickness to develop immunity, and if the serological response after feedback really did disappear in a matter of weeks. Working with commercial sow herds in North Carolina, Iowa, and Minnesota, we found that, after one good feedback exposure, sows with or without clinical signs routinely became infected and shed PEDV, but amount of shedding was less in non-clinical sows.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://nationalhogfarmer.com/health/pedv-immunity-past-and-present" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://nationalhogfarmer.com/health/pedv-immunity-past-and-present#comments PEDV Health PEDV Tue, 02 Sep 2014 10:53:00 +0000 50541 at http://nationalhogfarmer.com PEDV Conference Planned Sept. 23-25 http://nationalhogfarmer.com/pedv/pedv-conference-planned-sept-23-25 <div class="field-byline"> Source: National Pork Board </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Learn more about the federal government’s role in fighting Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV) at the upcoming international conference on novel Swine Enteric Coronavirus Diseases (nSECD) in Chicago, IL, Sept. 23-25, 2014.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://nationalhogfarmer.com/pedv/pedv-conference-planned-sept-23-25" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://nationalhogfarmer.com/pedv/pedv-conference-planned-sept-23-25#comments Food Animal Report PEDV Health PEDV Biosecurity Fri, 22 Aug 2014 10:39:00 +0000 50361 at http://nationalhogfarmer.com
